Surviving Mesothelioma in America!

Well, Life in America could be about what America is reading. I do not read as much as I should but I do read some and enjoy reading very much. Don't get me wrong. I am not a subscriber to Oprah's reading club but I am a literate American who reads good books.

One of the things that I have read about in recent months is the idea of Surviving Mesothelioma and the thoughts that go along with that.  However, the first thing to do is to know what Mesothelioma is and the symptoms and grief that goes with it.  Well it is a disease that is prevalent in people who have been exposed to asbestos over the years.  In short it is termed as Mesothelioma Cancer.

If this is a topic that interests you there are some things that you might want to read or know about.  One of these is the author of "Surviving Mesothelioma" a man named Paul Kraus.  His story is important because he is someone who outlived his prognosis of 1 year.  How super is that to know.

His book is a great story about a person who struggles daily to survive Mesothelioma Cancer.  This book is probably very inspiring for those who may be in this same category and what is really good is that the book is free and is highly  recommended reading for anyone struggling with mesothlioma.

 The book, which I have not read, appears to discuss in detail how people who may have Mesothelioma, may need to know about their exposure to asbestos, and how that may have came if they worked on navy ship.  It talks about the plumbing industry, pipefitters, boilermakers, construction workers, mechanics (especially those working on brakes) and many other professions.

The short of this whole thing is that if you have any reason to have worked in any of these industries and have any possible symptoms given, you should take a look at this book and see what help you can get.

That is my thoughts today about this.
